National Quilting Association Show PLUS Knitters Connection, Columbus, Ohio

Come see Just Curves and the Curve Master Presser Foot at Booth 829 at the Greater Columbus Convention Center on High Street, Downtown Columbus, June 17-19, 2010.  Check the website for more information and show hours.  There are still openings in great classes and the quilts on display promise to be outstanding.

As an added bonus, not associated with NQA, the Knitters Connection will again be having their show at the same time!  Many quilters are also knitters (or vice versa) and I have always split my time between the two shows, since they are just across the hallway from each other.

On the Road to California!

 

Road to California, a WONDERFUL quilt show in the Ontario, California, convention center, January 14-17, 2010. Be sure to come see us in Booth 1211.   A link to show information is in the Blogroll to the right.

Booth 1211 is the good folks from Treadleart who provide all those beautiful books we hastily gather up for new techniques and “someday” quilts.  Booth 1211 is in the ballroom, not the main showroom, so be sure you don’t miss it!  Just Curves is Tom & Janet Stocker’s guests demonstrating the Curve Master Presser Foot!   Please be sure to thank these gracious folks for ensuring that Curve Master has a presence at this big show. Despite our repeated groveling and attempts at bribery to the show promoter, we have not risen high enough on the wait list to get our own booth.

Now, are you disappointed that there’s no photo with this post?  Me too.  I had the perfect shot but no camera at the ready.  Here’s what you would be seeing IF I had the camera:   you’ve seen those  escort vehicles (usually little cars) with signs on top, WIDE LOAD, in front of and behind  semis loaded with  large bulky items hanging over the edges of the truck, tooling down the freeway, right?  Well, a woman about 4 feet across the beam got into a little car with the wide load sign on top, and her traveling companion, a gentleman about 6 feet across the beam, got into the second car with the wide load sign on top, and off they went, with no other vehicle being escorted.  “Hmmm, I sure hope that’s not a new law.  Where will I get my sign if it is,” I thought.
